Reflections for 2020-2021; Vue-Storefront raises $1.5M; Element UI for Vue 3.0 and more!

Hey there!

Welcome, to the first issue of 2021!

The Vue.js blog has been reactivated and can be found at blog.vuejs.org. There’s a new article posted – Reflections for 2020-2021. In there, Evan You is sharing some of the thoughts and team-wide plans for 2021. Definitely give it a read!

Vue-Storefront, a popular open-source project aimed at eCommerce has just raised $1.5M in the seed round. Congratulations to everyone involved! 🎉

Also, Element UI – one of the most popular component libraries for Vue – now has a Vue 3.0 version called Element Plus. You can read the announcement here. Check out the docs for the migration guide. And if you’d like to get started with it alongside Vite – there’s even an element-plus-vite-starter!

Speaking of Vue 3.0 libraries – have you heard of VueUse? The project, which started as a small collection of useful composables has grown by a lot! Just check out the list of available functions. They also just recently created a GitHub organization to host several useful libraries and projects like Vue-Demi.
